Six Weeks of Constant Thinking

As you know, I've moved this blog into an independent webspace and relaunched it as "Constant Thinking" about six weeks ago. Check it out, it's at constantin.glez.de. Here's a short "status report" after about 6 weeks of independent blogging:

One of my goals for my new blog is to achieve 500 RSS subscribers by summer (Yes, you're invited, too :)). You see, as a blogger, my lifebread is the number of people who regularly read my blog. That's how we bloggers feel rewarded for what we do: Every single RSS subscriber, every comment, every piece of feedback is like a pat on our shoulder, a drop of endorphine in our blood, a carrot... Well, you get the picture. Little things please little minds :).

In this case, my old blog has about 550 subscribers and I want you all to show up on my new blog as well. No, I won't just redirect the feed, that would feel like cheating and I'd never know if I deserved all those subscribers for my new blog or not (after all, you might just follow this blog just because it's a Sun blog, not because of is content).

So first of all, a big "Thank You!" to the more than 160 people who chose to follow my new blog's RSS feed. This is greatly appreciated!

To the other 390 or so, here's what you've probably been missing:

I hope you'll find these articles interesting and useful. Feel free to get more Technology Thoughts and add "Constant Thinking" to your RSS reader. I'm looking forward to your comments and feedback!

A New Home For My Blog

A screenshot of my new blog First of all, a big "Thank You!" to you, my dear readers and the more than 500 subscribers (according to Feedburner) to this blog!

After having blogged here, on my Sun blog, for more than 5 years, I thought that the year 2010 is the right time to start running my own, independent blog. This is a thought that I've been having in my mind for a long time, and it is also something like the next logical step in developing myself as a blogger. Also, to me as a geek, it is a great excuse to play more deeply with some new blogging/CMS software.

New Year, New Blog

During the Christmas weeks (and before), I've been digging around different blogging systems and CMS and decided to use Drupal as my blogging platform, which is very powerful and flexible while offering endless possibilities to expand my blog in the future. It is hosted at Strato, which is a great Sun customer in Germany, and I'm happy to see that they use UltraSPARC T based systems to run my blog, too :).

So, without further ado, I encourage you to check out my new blog called: "Constant Thinking". You can reach it at constantin.glez.de or just type constantthinking.org into your browser. I'm looking forward to your feedback and suggestions: What do you like, what improvements do you suggest, what subjects do you want me to blog about?

Future Plans

I expect to continue writing about OpenSolaris, Technology, Home Servers, Podcasting, and some occasionaly useful diversions, like you're accustomed to. As a result of building my new blog, I've dug deeper into the Drupal Web Content Management System, so expect a few articles around that, too. Finally, I've also developed an interest in ebooks, readers and the EPUB format and I plan to share some experience around that as well in future blog articles.

Stay In Touch!

I hope you like the new concept and design and I'd like to encourage you to subscribe to the new Constant Thinking RSS Feed, so we can stay in touch at least the next 5 years to come!
